The Braton's high rate of fire and accuracy make it a favorite among Tenno.

The Braton is a cheap production assault rifle manufactured by the Corpus, equally balanced amongst the three physical damages (barring a fraction more Slash damage). The damage, fire-rate, and accuracy are all balanced, allowing a rifle that will perform with surprising results against any faction. It replaced the prototype MK1-Braton in Corpus manufacturing, with all Bratons currently being marketed as this current model.

This weapon can be sold for Credits64‍7,500.

TipsEdit

  • When used extensively or playing solo, the ammunition of an unmodded Braton can burn down quite quickly. Consider switching to your pistol or utilizing melee combat when possible.
    • When fighting at long ranges, consider firing in short bursts or taking a calculated risk and charging forward. The ammo saved from sustained long range fighting far and away compensates for any sizable amount of close range damage.
  • Using Metal Auger and/or Shred makes the Braton useful for taking down large crowds without wasting too much ammo although the mods take up a sizable amount of mod capacity. The mod Split Chamber can have very similar effects, but it also takes up a large amount of mod capacity.
  • Using the Rifle Ammo Mutation mod can help regain lost ammo when needed, due to the weapon's semi-quick ammo consumption.
  • The Braton's reload time can be reduced to a mere 1.5 seconds with Fast Hands, making it ideal for speed-based builds that are looking for a fast-firing rifle that can be reloaded quickly.
  • It is recommended to use the Wildfire dual-stat mod in place of Hellfire, as the former will increase the Braton's magazine capacity to 54 while only suffering a loss of 30% elemental damage at the cost of 9 points compared to the latter's 11-point cost. This is also far more efficient than using Magazine Warp, as the former will only sacrifice 10% ammunition capacity for a far more beneficial 60% extra fire damage. Overall, it is most cost effective (9 points) than the alternatives to achieve similar benefits (20 points for both Hellfire and Magazine Warp).

TriviaEdit

  • Originally, the weapon shared the same model as the Latron, with similar damage and fire rate. It now has the same model as the MK1-Braton, though it is not confirmed if it was intended or subject to change.
  • The presence of the Braton's Primed counterpart suggests that the Braton available in the market may be the Corpus' attempt to recreate the rifle, hence its design aesthetic leaning towards the Corpus rather than the Tenno.
  • The Braton has Corpus script, which translates into "Lucsor Forge"- possibly the name of the factory it was manufactured in.
  • During Hotfix 10.6.1, an unreleased Nvidia skin was leaked (refer to gallery image 7 below). This was automatically applied to all Bratons, and was subsequently removed in the next hotfix with the redtext reading "just a small change, you probably won't even notice" referring to the fact that not many people knew of the mistake. It is unknown whether the skin will be officially released, or whether it was just a concept skin model. 
  • The Braton, as of June 2014, currently has the highest number of skins that can be used on a weapon, at a total of 5. It can use the following: IAH Games skin (Promotion, no longer available), Forest Camo (Available), Shock Camo (Available), Day of the Dead skin (Limited time item, no longer available), PS4 Skin (Exclusive to PS4 preorders in North America). A Nvidia skin was also temporarily leaked but never actually officially used.
